When I was a child, I used to believe that traffic lights were operated by a person underground who saw everything and changed their colour with a button, so he or she decided when the cars could pass and when not.

I once thought that the octane numbers on gas tanks were the years they had been manufactured in (ex: 87 octane was actually '87 octane), and that 93 octane (called Ultra 93) had just come out that year.

When I was a little boy I used to think that the people who drove cars must learn all the road by heart . Often I saw some cars who were not driving on the middle of de road and i thought these people did'nt leran their rules. I believed that because we said "rules of the road" . I discover it was wrong because one time my father had an accident andn I understood the people don't learn the road by heart

When I was 3, I used to believe that motorways were big conveyor belts because why would everyone on a motorway agree to drive fast? Let’s just say, I wasn’t the smartest kid.

I thought carpool lanes were for cars...with pools. Could NOT understand how the water didn't slosh out. I definitely pictured the cars as limos.
